Hello Region 6 members.  I hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer with their horses and WE.  There are still plenty of USAWE sanctioned shows still on the schedule for this year yet to take place, and lots of schooling shows and clinics around the region.

The big event, the Eastern Zone Championships, is shaping up and lots of people are looking forward to attending.  I hope all those that qualified come, and those that need scores to qualify, get out there and earn those scores.  We’d love to see you in Tennessee!

Here are some things to look forward to at the Eastern Zone Championships:

USAWE Logo design by Alexandra Crippen of Crippen Designs.

The logo represents the four trials of Working Equitation and highlights the diversity for which the sport is known in the United States. 

  • The first image depicts a mule, being ridden in western tack and attire in the Dressage trial.
  • The second image showcases an Iberian horse in traditional Iberian tack and attire performing in the EOH trial.
  • The third image shows a horse of indeterminate breeding and a rider in English tack and attire, competing in the Speed trial.
  • Together, all three riders represent a team competing together in the Cattle trial. Although the cow is not shown directly, the three teammates are working in concert. The image is intended to elicit the feeling of excitement and movement as the team moves their designated cow toward the holding pen to the far right, off the page. (Think of it as a "silent cow", much as the letter "e" at the end of a word is often referred to as "the silent 'e'" in recognition of its existence without being read aloud).
